Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - the Kitchen Desk

The desk area in the kitchen serves as a perfect spot to leave messages and important information. Magnetic primer and chalkboard paint make a great backsplash and the built-in cabinetry blend seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen.

what is the floor and color
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Michael Robert Construction
The floor is 4" oak with 3 coats of water based polyeurathane. We purposely went with a lower grade oak for more natural knots and variation in the board colors. The water-based poly lightens and accentuates the wood, instead of giving it a yellow, red, or golden hue like oil-based poly does.
